On January 17, 2018, EPA hosted a webinar explaining the process of renewable energy certificate (REC) arbitrage. REC arbitrage is a green power procurement strategy used to simultaneously decrease the cost of renewable electricity use, while still allowing the organization to substantiate renewable electricity use and improve their environmental metrics. Electricity consumers often use this strategy when installing self-financed renewable electricity projects or purchasing renewable electricity directly from a project through a power purchase agreement (PPA). This webinar explained REC arbitrage and presented two case studies.
